Large spacious house with with 4 bedrooms and open views and water access
Our house is located in Newport Harbor, a peaceful quiet location very close to Douglas and Saugatuck downtowns and to the Douglas and Saugatuck beaches. With wide open spaces in the front and the back, it is pleasurable for early rises and sunset watchers. The sun rises behind the Kalamazoo River and the deck looks at a pond where the sun sets.
The location is also great for bicycling and canoeing. We have 4 single person kayaks, a 3 seat canoe and a dock to launch them into the Kalamazoo River leading to the Saugatuck Harbor area, and Michigan Lake. The beaches and Saugatuck is 3 miles if one wants to bicycle.
With four spacious bedrooms, each with a walk in closet, a large living room with a vaulted ceiling it can accommodate large groups of 10 or more. The full kitchen and outside grill areas will add convenience to your stay.

About Barbara Kroczynska and Selim Erhan
We are both scientists and live and work in Chicago. We fell in love with the peace and beauty of the Saugatuck Douglas Area when we came for a visit. Now it is our favorite destination to get away from the city and relax on the beach, eat at the waterfront restaurants and check the latest paintings in the galleries.

Great family vacation house
The house worked out well for us...6 adults and four small children. We loved being able to use the kayaks and canoe on the Kalamazoo river from the dock in the neighborhood. We also enjoyed the outdoor space (big deck, outdoor dining, fire pit, hammock). The owners were readily available and very responsive to our questions ...a delight to work with!
Great House, Nice Home Owners
Our extended family stayed a week in July 2016. We enjoyed having the back deck with plenty of chairs, large backyard, and the four large bedrooms. Beds were comfy, too. We used the canoe & kayaks a number of times and appreciated the use of the dock just around the corner. Selim & Barbara were very good about quickly replying to any email and answering phone calls. They were especially helpful when a power outage due to a thunderstorm forced us out of the house and into a hotel for one night. Thank you, Selim and Barbara. The only items I would suggest you provide would be a sponge mop and bucket to clean up spills in the kitchen. We hope to return to this spacious house.
Our extended family (4 adults and two children, ages 10 and 15) stayed a few days in July 2016. We rented this house on a short notice (luckily for us it was available due to a cancellation), and it was simply a pleasure to communicate with the hosts, Barbara and Selim: they responded quickly to all our questions and were very flexible. The house is very comfortable, has everything one would need, the back deck overlooking the large backyard is lovely, and just spending time in and around the house was relaxing and enjoyable. We used the canoe & kayaks a couple of times, which was very convenient as the dock is just across the street and around the corner - it was also a beautiful experience. Everybody in the family enjoyed the few days we spent at this house and we are looking forward to coming back in the near future. Thank you, Barbara and Selim!
Wonderful Celebration with Friends!
We rented the house for a 50th birthday celebration for high school friends. This house met all our needs and then some! One of the greatest features was the roomy deck with a large table and umbrella to accommodate our entire group! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable--there was even an additional queen bed in the lower level. The owners were wonderful to work with. You won't be disappointed!
Great Property and Great Management
Working with the property owners was very easy and the amenities of the property were unparalleled. I can't wait until our next stay.
Great house and location
Clean and spacious. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Kitchen was stocked with newer dish ware and cook ware - had everything you needed to make great meals. Living area was homey and clean. We enjoyed the back deck and grill area - beautiful view and nice backyard to play baseball or frisbee, etc. A fire pit would have been perfect in order to roast a marshmallow or two! The owners were very communicative. We had a great family time there and would consider renting this location again. Short drive to Douglas and Saugatauk - less than 5 minutes away.
We are in the heart of the Saugatuck Douglas area which is one of the 10 travel sites in the USA. Beautiful nature next to galleries, unique shopping and water front restaurants and beautiful beaches with impressive sand dunes.
